I used an exclamation mark yesterday! Aside from punctuating dialogue once in awhile, I have never used an exclamation point in my prose (my blog, yes ... but that doesn’t count). I know what a terrible thing that is to do, but it had to be an exclamation point, this time.
I feel so naughty. :-)
Remember that little poem we all learned when we were little?
If you sprinkle
while you tinkle,
please be neat
and wipe the seat.
Our society seems to be having trouble with that basic courtesy, lately. Maybe I should petition my Senator to make having that poem on the back of stall doors a new state law. It’s driving me crazy! It’s icky! I wish people would just wipe the seat, already!
So what’s your pet peeve of the day?
